So, I've been wanting to try Zentangles for a while now and Jill from Life with Nature Girl, was good enough to give us a bit of a guide ~ two pages of squares filled in with different shapes to fill in spaces on zentangles (which I highly recommend) I no longer had an excuse to put them off.
The kids and I sat down at the dining room table one afternoon. I showed them one of the Zentangle videos along with "The Quilt Rat's" gallery of artwork and we got to work on our own.
Julianne was the next one finished. She also decided to do a fish although she put lots of work into hers and really took the time to fill it all in. She added waves on top along with a fish hook and coral on the bottom of the ocean. Notice the word fish inside her fish. One of my favorite things about her work is the sand dollars she added and the other thing I really like is the angle of her fish. She really enjoyed doing this and is looking forward to doing more. She is like a sponge when it comes to trying new things plus she really like doing stuff with me (which I really appreciate). She opted for purple ink which also turned out very cool. My only criticism for her was to make more light and more dark spots so there are very defined areas.
It's a project that is fun for kids of all ages and grown up's too!
Give it a try ~ I'd love to see what you come up with.
